GRIMOIRE OF HIDEOUS BEASTIES
10 pound book. Precious item. Out of print.
First written in 2700 B.C. by Troops in Egypt. Became standard for Troops in Ancient China, and eventually spread to Troops across the globe. Info was handwritten and passed on from generation to generation. Last additions to the Grimoire ended in 1465. After then (due to the invention of the printing press), the Monster Compendium became the standard for monster research until Troop Grid organized most monster data in 1967. There are only 41 known Grimoires left in existence.
They are precious and extremely rare; considered a great resource for the study monsters not seen since early mankind.
